The Market Focus Conference keynote will be jointly presented by David Hermann and Niclas Gyllenram of Volvo Car Corporation, providing Volvo's perspective from both Goteborg and Silicon Valley on the future of displays in the automotive interior, as increasing vehicle autonomy demands new solutions for HMI and opens up new business opportunities. 

"We are delighted to have Volvo keynote an outstanding agenda for the Automotive Display Market Focus Conference," said Bob O'Brien, Co-Founder and President of DSCC.  "As the automotive industry heads toward autonomous vehicles and Mobility as a Service (MaaS), both the demands and the opportunities for innovative display solutions are multiplying, and we'll hear from Volvo and many other industry leaders about how they will meet these needs."

In addition to the keynote from Volvo, the Market Focus Conference will include five sessions:

  • Session 1 will provide an industry analyst view, with presentations by respected analysts from DSCC, Strategy Analytics, and IHS Markit, describing the important developments in the market and technologies for automotive displays.

  • Session 3 will allow leading flat panel display innovators to discuss the challenges of displays in the auto interior, and the technology solutions they are putting in place to address these challenges, including presentations by leaders from FlexEnable, AUO, JDI America, and BOE Varitronix.
  • Session 4 will address the many issues surrounding touch technologies as part of the HMI system, including talks by executives from Via Optronics and Hap2U.
  • Session 5 will look forward by discussing automotive head-up displays (HUD) and lighting and will include presentations by representatives of the German Flat Panel Forum, Luminit, and Texas Instruments.

Attendees will be invited to join a special networking session after the conference, held jointly with the Foldables Market Focus Conference.

"The automotive display market deserves its spot as a Hot Topic for Display Week, and we will bring representatives from leading companies in North America, Europe, and Asia to discuss the important developments in the industry for the Automotive Display Market Focus Conference," said 2019 Display Week Conference General Chair Rashmi Rao.  "With the new organization of the Automotive Hot Topic Track, display and automotive industry professionals can be sure that they will have the opportunity to see all of the automotive display and HMI programming on offer at Display Week 2019."
